Well, I've had almost a full day to calm down & process this, and I have to admit I think Olney & even our own illustrious Martini have some valid points. This team sucked last year with the big payroll. It won 5 more games than did the 1993 expansion Marlins. The farm system was all but bare. Blowing the whole thing up may be the only shot at building the franchise back to respectabilty.
That said, from a business standpoint this remains a disaster. They have alianated practically the entire fanbase & even worse, they seem to have alianated Giancarlo Stanton. They lose him, its done. He's the only one fans care about right now. We were promised that once Marlins Park opened, something like this would not ever happen again. And here it is, only 7 months later & they have gutted the team. Fans are not going to forgive this & do not have the patience for rebuild #3456. Marlins Park willbe empty next season.......I will be shocked if they draw much more than a million fans total.
